Disney's Broccolini Aglio Olio


Broccolini Aglio Olio

Wine Country Trattoria


5 T. olive oil, divided
¼ c. chopped garlic
¼ c. chopped shallots
¼ t. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
1 bunch broccolini cut into ½ inch pieces
1 c. grape tomatoes, halved
½ t. coarse salt
¼ t. ground black pepper
4 c. cooked short-cut pasta (campanelle, penne, or rotini)
4 generous handfuls fresh arugula
3 generous handfuls fresh baby spinach
1 lemon, juiced
¼ c. dry white wine
¼ t. ground black pepper
¼ to ½ c. grated Parmesan cheese (optional)


1. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large saute pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add garlic and shallots, stirring constantly. Cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant. Be careful not to burn garlic.

2. Add red pepper flakes and broccolini, stirring to coat in oil. Cook until the broccolini is just tender.

3. Add tomatoes, ¼ teaspoon salt, and pepper to the pan. Add pasta, arugula, spinach, lemon juice, and wine to the pan. Increase the heat to high. Cook, tossing, until spinach and arugula are wilted slightly, about 1 to 2 minutes.

4. Drizzle in remaining 2 tablespoons oil, tossing to combine. Add remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper, and grated Parmesan cheese, if using. Serve immediately.
